Show your support on the Vhi Wall of Support

Vhi Wall of Support

The 2019 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon will take place on Bank Holiday Sunday 2 June at 2pm. Over 30,000 women are expected to walk, jog and run the 10K route starting in Fitzwilliam Square and finishing on Baggot Street in Dublin.


If you know of a loved one or friend taking part, show your support for them by sending a message to be displayed on Vhi’s Wall of Support. Just ask them for their race number and submit your support message to by 31 May.


Your family member, friend or running buddy will feel the love and receive a much-needed boost at the 7km marker as they pass Vhi’s giant Wall of Support. Your support message should include the full name of the participant, so they know it’s for them! For example, ‘Go Catherine Murphy, from Rachel and all the girls.’ This will be just what they need to run strong all the way to the finish line.
